Dear Saints Academy Family,
We are writing you to provide an update on our 2021 Annual Fund and announce a kick-off of a very important campaign that will assist our students and faculty right now.
First, thank you to all those that have already so generously given to The Saints Academy’s 2020-2021 Annual Fund. To date, 29% of our current families have contributed so far during this campaign. As a reminder, this year, more than any other year, we ask that you donate to The Saints Academy Annual Fund as there was not, nor will there be, any other fundraising event.
We were not able to host our annual Legacy Celebration that honors individuals deserving of recognition, our Golf Outing was a community (just for fun) event, and our Auction is not possible this year. So, The Annual Fund becomes the vital source to bridge the gap between the actual cost to educate and tuition, as well as to assist with much needed improvements that help our students every day. Every year, these fundraising events bring in more than $80,000 toward our operating budget.
This year’s Annual Fund has seen an increase in grandparent and extended family donations. Thank you! The Saints Academy continues to thrive due to contributions from our school families (past and present), alumni, grandparents, parishioners, friends, and businesses.
Your help needed
Those that know our Auction are aware that we typically have a “Fund-a-Dream”, a specific item that enhances the school. This year, we are wrapping that "Dream" item into the Annual Fund. We are pleased to announce this year’s need: Classroom Audio Visual Interactive Equipment. The time has come to update the Smart Boards that are simply aging out. In order to make the necessary upgrades throughout the school and install this new technology, we need to raise $50,000.
Starting today, a portion of the Annual Fund will be used to fulfill this need. Can you help us with this fundraising effort? Would you have attended the Legacy celebration or the auction? Would you have purchased a sponsorship for any of our advancement events? Or made a donation to the auctions or raffles? Do you want to help us continue our program that fosters the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual development of our students?
Please consider donating to our Annual Fund. Your contribution, no matter the amount, does make a difference.
